I am so glad that pointy toe flat shoes are back in fashion for Spring. My feet never looked very good in the round toe bally flats that have been so popular for the last few seasons. The reason for this is at 5’7″ and size 37 feet round toed shoes just look silly. They shorten my feet and can give the impression that I am about to topple over. Not a good look.

How I adapt the new Bell sleeve trend. Never say never where fashion is concerned. At first I was not at all sure about the ever increasing trend for tops with elaborate sleeve detail. However I was ordering my new pair of exercise pants as I promised I would in my recent post Getting fit after a long break. Whilst I was on the MarksandSpencer site I thought I would have a “browse” as one does. This internet shopping can be very addictive. I find it helps to be disciplined and know what you are looking for before you start otherwise time can just disappear and nothing else gets done. On this occasion I got lucky and discovered two tie sleeve tops. I thought why not at least give them a try.

I definitely expected to find that they did not suit me and I would have to return them. But no!
